Bloomin’ Baked Apples Recipe
Ingredients
  • 2 Honeycrisp apples (or other crisp apples)
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar, packed
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 4 caramels, unwrapped
  • Optional toppings: vanilla ice cream, caramel sauce and cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. To get the blooming apple look, you need to cut the apples. Slice off the top 1/4 to 1/3 of the apples. Scoop out the core. I don’t have an apple corer so I used my metal 1/2 teaspoon measuring spoon. Then, use a thin knife to make two, deep circular cuts around the center of the apple. Next, turn the apple over and make narrow cuts all the way around the apple. Flip it back over and you can see all of the cuts.
  3. Place the apples in an oven safe dish and put two unwrapped caramels into the center of each apple.
  4. Heat butter and brown sugar in the microwave for 30 second, stir and continue heating for an additional 30 seconds. Remove from the microwave and stir in flour and cinnamon. Divide the mixture over the top of the two sliced apples.
  5. Bake at 375 for 25-30 minutes. Remove from the oven and use a large spoon to move the apples into bowls.
  6. Top with a scoop of ice cream, drizzle with caramel and sprinkle with cinnamon. The ice cream will cause the caramel in the center to harden so eat quickly or put the ice cream scoop on the side.

Our most salient memories are those connected to our most powerful emotions. Among these include the sense of the mystical. Our spiritualities are built on memories of sensory data paired with the feeling of awe and wonder. Search for these senses that awaken those memories - the smell of burning sage, a quiet pond, a roaring thunderstorm. Place reminders of these things in your life as a constant presence of the mystical, from your living rooms to your office spaces, and you will deepen your spiritual practices by altering your emotional state. This is what ritual does. This is witchcraft in its most natural sense.
